    misrepresented New Testament writing.  She misinterpreted the message between the lines she misrepresented.  

    She was a guest in a major U.S. city known for many things, not least its vanguard urban diversity.  

    Downstream tour sites are now canceling her shows.  They should be canceled.  Her remarks were unprofessional, intemperate, unresearched, and unwelcome.  

    I agree with many others here that the audience responded appropriately.  The management at Yoshi's cut her mike and closed the show down.  

    If Michelle Shocked doesn't like gay people, she scheduled the San Francisco show in the wrong damn place.  

    At this juncture I recommend that Ru Paul do a cover album of Michelle's better-known songs and donate the proceeds from same to lesbian and gay charities.
